From The Good Bookstall - July 2010

You might have thought you knew plenty of things to make out of a paper plate but this book will prove to you that you hadn't thought of everything!

This is a wide collection of ideas ranging from sheep to musical instruments, clocks to doves and advent wreaths to woven crosses. There is an index of Biblical references at the back as well as thematic contents at the front.

Each craft is nicely illustrated in black and white. The instructions are clearly and simply written and each one includes a way of talking about the Christian theme and also 'other ideas' and ways of adapting the craft.

Obviously this book needs to be part of a wider collection. No children's group will want to use paper plates for every craft but it is a fantastic resource, full of cheap, easy and fun ideas. I never realised paper plates were quite so versatile!
